Here is another free verse I wrote, keeping to the Aussie bush feel.

 

Waking.
 
 
Stirring in my swag,
aroused to morning sounds.
 
Water trickling,
lorikeets screech, chatter,
bush turkeys scratch, grunt,
early trill of cicadas.
 
smell.
 
Freshness of eucalypt gums,
wild flowers,
smokey embers.
 
Eyes opening.
 
Kaleidoscopes
of sunlight shards
pierce diminishing mist,
a small cloud of pale blue smoke
hovers above smouldering campfire,
water trickles over rocks,
lorikeets search for nectar,
turkeys eat breakfast grubs,
cicadas frozen to trunks,
kangaroos drink.
 
Hypnotised by nature,
Still I lie, not wanting to move,
 
How long will I stay?
 
How long?.

Really enjoyed this, David. Good on ya and thanks. I'll be back for more of your interpretations; I can almost smell the 'pale blue smoke' of blue gum wood burning as I think this all over.
Aloha nui loa, Kaliki

G'day Dave,

Your latest free verse is in a word: mesmerizing. As a reader you transported me to Australia's exquisite bush country where I could see, feel, hear and smell this wonderful vast land.

Outstanding composition.
